It doesn’t matter if we’re coming home from work after a long day, trying to figure out the budget, or even trying to figure out our own wives…prayer is the last thing men think of to solve a problem.

I frequently come home exhausted from work, and the only thing I feel like doing is sitting down on my recliner to relax for a few minutes.
I love that the my wife and kids are excited that I’m home, but it’s hard to find the energy and emotional bandwidth to give them the attention they need.
Verse 11 of the Lord’s Prayer is where I draw my strength:
“ Give us today our daily bread.”
Sure, we need the physical stuff, like food, shelter, and money. But what I’m asking for here is his Spirit to fill me when I come home.
It let’s me rely on God’s strength to love my family, instead of trying to muscle through on my own.
When have you taken special notice of God working when you come home after a long day?
